Thanks to a generous donation from the Confidence Foundation, our aircraft factory display in the WWI Fighters Gallery has been expanded to allow our Jenny to be displayed fully assembled.
The Museum of Flight's Jenny was built as an Army airplane at the Springfield Aircraft Company in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1917. It was a jumbled mass of battered parts and pieces when Paul and Lucy Whittier of Friday Harbor, Washington purchased it in 1982. The Jenny was lovingly restored from plans and rebuilt using the materials and methods of the era. The project took over 9,500 man-hours to complete.
